FOS to Consider Bylaws Change During 2019 Annual Meeting

The Florida Orthopaedic Society Board of Directors will be proposing a Bylaws Amendment for membership consideration during the 2019 FOS Annual Meeting.   The recommendation from the Board is to create a Diversity Committee as a Standing Committee of the organization.  


FOS President, David Chandler, MD, appointed a Diversity Task Force last summer as he began his service as President.  The initiative was designed to make sure the organization is addressing one of our stated strategic goals related to diversity.   The Task Force has been actively addressing diversity within our membership and leadership over the past 10 months.  In recognition of their progress and the positive response from the membership, the Board is recommending we amend the Bylaws to make the Diversity Committee a Standing Committee of the organization.  If the amendment is approved by the membership, the Chair of the Diversity Committee will have a seat on the FOS Board of Directors.  The Chair position is filled via appointment by the FOS President.


The proposed Bylaw Amendment language is as follows:


9. Diversity Committee

This committee shall consist of a Chair appointed by the President and additional members appointed at the discretion of the President.  The Committee will be responsible for meeting the strategic goal of the organization in promoting diversity within the orthopaedic work force in Florida and within the membership and leadership structure of the organization.


If you have any questions or concerns related to this matter, please contact the FOS office.  The membership will vote on this amendment on Sunday morning during the Business Meeting at the FOS Annual Meeting.
